Twitter racing journalists directory

Courtesy of, here are the twitter names for some of the media folk in racing.

With new people joining twitter all the time, it’s unlikely to be up to date. If you want to add to it or comment on it, please use the ‘leave a comment’ section at the foot of the page rather than sending me a tweet (that way, you do the work!)
